So the economy is in the toilet and you’re strapped for cash. But if you must stay home with pizza and PBR, well, you should at least cut back in lovely surroundings.

Her favorite Boston shopping haunts: Suneri, French Connection, and secondhand stores on Newbury Street
Her best deal of the sale season: red suede shoes from French Connection marked down from $180 to $30

Sold at the Shop at the Sports Club/LA (4 Avery Street, Boston, 617.375.8200), the bees-wax-based formula contains vitamins A, C, and E; soybean oil, which is rich in amino acids; and linoleic acid and phospholipids to help skin with the healing process. Plus, its six shades blend in and cover zits like a pro.
